? JIM MARSHALL PHOTOGRAPHY, LLC. San Francisco, 1968.  1965 TYPE 356 C: The 356 was Porsche?s first production model and had a nearly two-decade run as both a closed coupe and a convertible. This particular car is from the model?s last year of production and features a decidedly non-factory paint scheme, created at the request of famed singer Janis Joplin, who bought the car used and had it customized by a roadie for her band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Apparently her friends were not the only ones who all drove Porsches.
